Valentines printmaking workshop planned

SOUTHWEST HARBOR — Carver Steve Valleau will lead a reduction block printmaking workshop at the Wendell Gilley Museum on Tuesday, Feb. 6, from 5:30-7:30 pm. Attendees will carve their own linoleum blocks and ink a set of cards to send or share.

All materials are provided, though participants are encouraged to bring an idea for the image they would like to craft, whether it be a love bird or other Valentine-inspired image. Cheery refreshments and “tweetheart” puns are promised. Preregistration is required for the limited spaces. The workshop costs $15 for museum members and $20 for nonmembers.
